Manufacturer: Circle Y
Model: Arabian Equitation Saddle 2128
Category: Show Saddles
Purchase: I bought this saddle used and paid $400 for it. I was looking for a saddle to fit a short backed quarter/mustang mare who I was finding hard to fit.
Likes: It fits my mare beautifully and is lightweight enough for me to lift up onto her back. I'm only 5'1" and weight can be an issue for me. I'd guess it's around 25 to 30 pounds. It's comfortable, the leather is supple, despite it's age and it stays put on her back.
Dislikes: The stirrup fenders were too long for me, even on the highest hole settings. I just had a saddlemaker adjust them for me and it's fine now. Well worth the extra cost to shorten them.
Quality: This saddle was made in 1997 and is now going on 14 years old. The construction is beautiful, it doesn't look as old as it is at all. The leather has held up beautifully.
Summary: One of my favorite saddles that I have owned. It does the job on the trail and I've used it for team penning as well. No shifting or movement. I feel secure and solid on my mare. Circle Y has never disappointed me.
